You may have noticed the other features listed for the site, and although they will be explained a
little more in Chapter 9; the only other feature active by default on a Team Site is Team Collaboration
Lists. This feature is what makes the list and library templates, such as Issue Tracking, Tasks, or
Picture library, available for use in creating new lists and libraries on the site.
Once the feature has been deactivated, go back to the home page.
Once there, you will see that it has reverted to being a web part home page (the page is now
just a standard default.aspx, as you can see in the address bar in Figure 5.33), and now it
contains the Announcements List View web part. Announcements is a list created specifically
to have its contents displayed on the home page and comes prepropagated with a ”Get Started
with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation!” item, for your convenience. The page also contains
Calendar and Links List View web parts based on the site’s existing Calendar and Links lists.
Notice that the Vacation Request web part we made isn’t there, nor is the Relevant Documents
web part—both of those are on the wiki home page, not the underlying web part page. This proves
that the web part home page is an entirely different page from the wiki home page. This can be
useful to know in case you’d like to swap between the two for any reason (such as a mistake on the
wiki page that needs to be removed from view quickly).
In our case, since the home page now does not contain the Vacation Request web part, we can
import it to the page so it will be visible once again. Relevant Documents, on the other hand, can
easily be added from the web part workspace because it is a built-in web part for the site.
